Monday, Monday, MONDAY!!

I'm absolutely thrilled to announce that Salvation, the fifth book in my Firsts and Forever series, will be available on Amazon this upcoming Monday, April 21st!!

I'm so excited to bring you the latest installment of this series! I think you'll really enjoy Trevor's story, as well as revisiting your favorite couples from the previous books. They're all here: Jamie and Dmitri, Charlie and Dante, Hunter and Brian, and of course Christopher and Kieran, whose beautiful wedding happens during Salvation. There's plenty of Nana too, and new characters Skye, Gianni and Christian to meet.

Please check back here on my blog, and I'll provide a link to Salvation as soon as it goes live on Amazon.

Finally, a reason to look forward to Mondays! :)

On to Editing!

Hi all! I finished writing Salvation this week, and now have moved on to the editing phase. I can hardly wait to bring you the next book in my Firsts and Forever series! It should just be a couple more weeks now, as I polish it up and make it the best it can be for you. I'll keep you posted here when I pinpoint a release date -- and that just may be happening in April!! :)

Speaking of Weddings...

I just finished writing Christopher and Kieran's wedding, which occurs during my upcoming book, Salvation. I'm the type of person who cries at weddings, and ones I write are apparently no exception! It was just really emotional to write the culmination of that relationship, and I'm looking forward to bringing it to my readers!

I also used the wedding as a way to revisit all the couples from my Firsts and Forever series. You'll get to find out what's going on with Jamie and Dmitri, Charlie and Dante, Hunter and Brian, and of course our soon-to-be newlyweds, Christopher and Kieran. So many of you have taken these characters to heart, and I hope you enjoy this glimpse into what their lives are like past their happily ever after!

On top of that, you'll also be meeting several new characters that will continue to move this series forward, including exuberant Skye and troubled Christian. And of course, first and foremost this book will bring you Trevor's story. He's been a joy to write. He's shy and a bit unsure of his place in the world, which I think a lot of us struggle with at some point. I love the way he's come to life and earned his place in the Firsts and Forever family.

So when's Salvation coming out? Well, I'm shooting for a May release, and right now I'm on track for that. I still have the last section of the book to write, and then of course there's the editing process, but May is looking good at this point! I'll keep you up to date here on my blog as I continue moving toward that goal.

From a reader...

Sometimes my readers send me emails that really touch my heart. That happened today.

I got a message from twenty-four-year-old Joe, who's marrying his true love Jonathan this summer. Here's what he had to say about their relationship:

"...I'm getting married to my fiance Jonathan in August. We've been together for 2 years now. We used to work together 5 years ago... (we couldn't stand each other then) and somehow reconnected. It's our own amazing crazy love story. Now we're getting married!"

How cute is that?! Here's the part that made me tear up, that's how much it meant to me:

"When I do my vows there's one thing I want to put in them that means the world to me and is something I always felt towards him but never could put into words. I hope it's okay that I use a line from your book:

I missed nothing, and I know that for a fact because I have absolutely everything right here. You astonish me, you fulfill me and care for me, you make me feel so incredibly loved and I'll spend every day of the rest of my life trying to make you as happy as you make me."*

I'm absolutely honored and humbled that he'd want to include something I wrote in his vows as he weds the love of his life!

Thank you, Joe, for paying me the highest compliment imaginable. I wish you and Jonathan a lifetime of happiness!

Checking In

Hi all! It's been a while since I updated my blog, so I thought I'd check in. I've been busy writing Salvation, Trevor's story, which is the fifth book in the Firsts and Forever series, and it's right on track for release this spring. I'm shooting for a May release, and I've been really pleased with the way it's coming together.

At the same time, I've been mapping out the next two books that will follow Salvation. People have asked me how many books I plan to write in the Firsts and Forever series, and there's no set answer. As long as these books remain popular and people keep asking for more, I'll keep them coming!

Alright, I'd better get back to it! Right now in the scene I'm writing, Trevor and his love interest are just about to...take it to the next level. That's all I'm saying! ;)

Cover reveal, and thanks!

Thank you to all my readers for your support -- you've made Gathering Storm a success! An extra thank you goes to those of you that have taken the time to leave great reviews on Amazon, and that have emailed to tell me you enjoyed Hunter's story. Feedback like that means the world to me!

Because so many of you have expressed an interest in the next book in the Firsts and Forever series, I decided to go ahead and post an early cover reveal. Trevor's story is called Salvation, and it will be available this spring.

Much love,
